HitFix Reviews and Ratings
B+'X-Men: Days of Future Past' is the most ambitious entry so far in this 14-year-long series, and the original director, Bryan Singer, returns with an all-star cast that bridges two different timelines in an attempt to make all the various dangling story threads work together.
Matthew Vaughn may have been under the gun on 'X-Men: First Class,' but he responded with one of the most successful modern comic book movies so far, a smart and stylish affair that juggles multiple characters and alternative history to exceptional effect.
